The IoS-OP platform has been fully utilised in a bulk carrier built by Shin Kurushima Sanoyas Shipbuilding Co Ltd.
IoS-OP is described as a universal platform that enables the sharing of ship operational data among shipbuilders, manufacturers and related service providers without compromising profits of data providers.
Operational data of the vessel, which is already in service, has been collected on board and sent to shore via the ‘FURUNO Open Platform’ (FOP). FOP is ship-shore data transmission service by FURUNO ELECTRIC CO LTD. In this case, FOP collects the navigation data from VDR and engine data from engine data logger and transfers these data to ShipDC.
The data stored at the IoS-OP data centre has been analysed by ‘Fleet Intelligence’, a ship performance monitoring, reporting, analysis, and optimisation tool powered by NAPA.
The analysis result is shared with Shin Kurushima Sanoyas Shipbuilding in line with the common rules of IoS-OP, enabling the shipyard to monitor the performance of the ship in service. The vessel is the first to incorporate all elements of IoS-OP, the platform for collection, distribution and utilisation of the operation data, from its delivery.
The vessel is equipped with energy-saving add-ons developed by Shin Kurushima Sanoyas Shipbuilding, and IoS-OP enables the effectiveness monitoring of these functions in actual operations by all the parties involved, which is expected to lead to further optimisation.
ShipDC said it will continuously work for safety of ships, contribution to the environment and economic rationality through the data utilisation as well as further acceleration of the collection, distribution, and utilisation of data in the maritime industry with IoS-OP at the core.
